A new FBI agent will oversee operations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Carlos Cases, previously served as director for Latin America and the southwest border for the FBI’s criminal investigations division in Washington, D.C., will monitor crimes in U.S. territories from the San Juan, Puerto Rico office, the FBI announced .
Working outside of the mainland is nothing new for Cases. He worked at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City and also at the FBI office in Puerto Rico, where he played a role one of the bureau’s largest public corruption cases of local police.
